Cecil. End Tables. May 22nd , 2018.
An end table is intended to make it easy for people sitting in an armchair to reach their drinks nibbles or books and newspapers without having to bend down over the side of their chair to do so. The same with a coffee table - it should be set at a comfortable height. Your first priority should therefore be the dimensions of your coffee and end tables. A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
Keep in mind that you don`t have to follow any conventions when selecting tables for your home. While traditional coffee tables and end tables are square or rectangular there`s no rule saying you can`t pick a round or oval model or even improvise and go with a totally non-traditional piece that will fill the bill nicely such as a trunk or chest. The important thing is to choose what you like. Thankfully matching sets make the process much easier since you can make a single purchase and enjoy the enduring beauty of three quality pieces of furniture that not only match one another but match the room as well. You may have never thought of using nesting tables as end tables but they offer you a lot of advantages over traditional end tables. First let`s explain what nesting end tables are. Think of them as a table that fits under a table that fits under a table.
Nesting end tables can also come in handy during those big screen sports events your family loves to host. If you don`t have a coffee table or it it`s too small to handle the munchies and drinks of a big game you can pull out the nesting tables and put them into immediate service. You can also use these tables in lieu of a coffee table. Buying a third set of nesting tables to use as a tiered or multi-level coffee table ties the entire room together while giving you even more space. And if you need a table in another room such as when your child is sick you can simply pull out one of the nested tables and use it instead of putting everything on the bed or letting the nightstand overflow with hankies and medicines.
However if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one you need to consider going with something a bit smaller in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table. When selecting end tables of metal be sure you shop with a reputable seller who handles quality products. There may be a reason why you to such a good deal on a metal table. The metal welds may be inferior the fit may not be good between the different pieces and the materials themselves may not be high quality causing the finish to flake off within months of your purchase. As with any piece of furniture end tables are a major investment and you want to make sure that you are getting top quality for the budget you have available. You certainly don`t want to fall in love with a set of end tables that are the perfect fit for your room only to have them fall apart on you.
Coffee tables and end tables should also meet the purpose you have intended for them. In some cases this will be simply as a repository for a coffee cup or drinks glass. For others it might mean holding countless magazines or `coffee table` books. Whatever your purpose is your occasional tables should meet your needs while also matching the rest of the furniture in the room - or by contrasting with it by design.
